This is part of the Earth Bound Power Series. The series can be seen in two ways, one a Rothko, Mondrian power line study with birds. Or in a religious light.
The painting is about man’s power, and death being bound to the earth. . .though God’s power is not bound to the earth. Obviously the sun symbolizes the Son of God, risen from death. The birds are on the power lines, they are mankind, not yet in flight, not yet risen to heaven.
Acrylic on panel. To be shown in the Springville Museum in Utah – Sept. 10 – Oct. 15 2010.
